Belem is a short tram ride outside of Lisbon. It is the gateway to the Atlantic. This day trip was an immersion into Portuguese naval history. Outside along the mouth of the river are huge monuments to the heroes of exploration. The Naval Museum itself tells the story of naval technology from the 15th century to the present. Jerónimos Monastery provides the home to the memorial to Vasco da Gama. It looks like a tomb, but it is empty.
